Excellence for Every Child
Dear NES Parents/Guardians,
We wanted to inform you about a new law in Tennessee regarding cell phone use in schoool zones. As of January 1, 2018 it became illegal to hold your cell phone in a moving vehicle within a school zone. If you are a driver over 18 years of age then you can talk through Bluetooth but still can't hold the phone. For drivers under the age of 18, handheld use of the phone and use of the phone through Bluetooth is illegal. It is a Class C Misdemeanor and punishable by fine up to $50. Knowing this will help keep our students, families, and staff safe.
Congratulations to Lucy Beck, our 2017/2018 Spelling Bee winner! We had many students to participate and do a great job but Lucy was our winner!
NES helped Knox County Schools break the Guiness World Record for most number of students simultaneously participating in a computer science lesson! Congratulations to all the students that participated and thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this possible on November 8th!
